“I practice Yoga so that I can do the work to be the best version of myself. I use the practice to nurture myself and develop self-acceptance. I draw on it to help me through difficult times. I practice to center myself, so I can consciously engage with the world in ways that are meaningful.” – Greg Nardi

Why we love Greg
We see Greg as a highly skilled teacher with an incredible knowledge of how the practice works, not only on a physical level but on a deeper philosophical level too. His integrity and dedication is plain to see and it’s always a pleasure to have him come and teach at Stillpoint, where the practitioners rave about his warm, calm demeanour, and beautifully focused classes.
